Alessandra Carlier-Checchia - Enter the gallery

    After graduating in Fine Arts from French Secondary School , I attended the College of Beaux-Arts de Versailles where I studied photography, ceramics, architecture and engraving.
I then studied Textile and Fashion Design at the Lisaa institute, Paris.

    Since then, the engravings I make on lino, wood and plexiglass are strongly influenced by textile. The backgrounds for the patterns that I print are made of coloured collages, and these collages can be transparent. I superimpose the prints.
Sometimes I also work on monotypes. I also like playing with the relief of an embossing.
The themes that I choose are figurative: family portraits,planes,landscapes, shells...

Regarding photography, my style is very suggestive of documentaries, with a great concern for details.
